“The argument about “unused” leases is a red herring, a smokescreen for energy policies that have had a hamstringing effect on the world’s leading producer of natural gas and oil. It suggests American producers have been motivated by a desire to manipulate the market during the current crisis in Europe. This is false. American oil and gas producers are able and willing to do their part to support American energy leadership, including providing energy that can help allies abroad.” — Kevin O’Scannlain, API

In Episode 259 of District of Conservation, Gabriella explains the differences between oil and gas leases versus permits and how the White House is disseminating incorrect information despite available information on government websites.
